Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/13/2015 -- On Saturday July 11, 2015, METal International will host a premier entrepreneurs event titled 'Making the Perfect Pitch', featuring a keynote presentation by capital investment guru and seasoned entrepreneur Oren Klaff.
The Los Angeles event, hosted by Ken Rutkowski, targets local entrepreneurs with speeches, presentations and networking opportunities to help them find new ways to raise money and grow their businesses. Klaff will explain the methods he has used to close over $1 billion in deals, and give clear examples that the entrepreneurs can use to raise money, close deals and negotiate successfully. He will also explore why traditional sales and marketing techniques were created for struggling small business owners, and share tips on how the best salespeople, bankers and dealmakers are attracting good deals.
Known for his savvy approach to fundraising, Klaff raised over $400 million of investor capital from high net-worth individuals and financial institutions between 2003-2008, applying his pioneering approaches to raising capital and incorporating neuroscience into capital markets programs. He is currently the Director of Capital Markets at investment bank, Intersection Capital, where he manages its capital raising platform, business and product development. He has years of experience in securities markets in capital raising advisory leadership, and co-developed and oversees Intersection Capital's flagship product, Velocity™. Klaff is also a member of Geyser Holding's investment committee where he has been a principal since 2006.
The METal event is sponsored through generous food and beverage donations provided by the following METal member owned organizations. With 17 locations, the healthy, farmer's market inspired, eco-friendly food chain Tender Greens is one of Inc.
